Liverpool, Aston Villa and Newcastle United target Brajan Gruda has indicated that his suitors will have to guarantee playing minutes if they want to sign him this summer.


The 20-year-old has emerged on the radar of several clubs following an impressive last season at Mainz.


Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen are believed to be interested in snaring him away from Mainz.



He is also attracting interest from the Premier League where Liverpool, Aston Villa and Newcastle have been keeping tabs on the player.


Gruda claimed that he is definitely thinking about a transfer, but has left it to his agent to sort out his future.



The winger admitted that he is open to different challenges, but indicated that he will require assurances about playing time before he gives his nod of approval to a club.


He insisted that at his age he needs to be playing as much as possible to develop further.



Gruda told German daily Abendzeitung (via Fussball Transfers): “Of course, we are thinking about the topic, but at the moment my full focus is here.


“My agent will sort everything out.


“[I am] open to everything.


“At my age, it is important that I play a lot and show what I can do.


“If I sit on the bench week after week or only get a few appearances, I think that will destroy players.


“Money will come at some point when you are very, very successful. But the important thing is to play and have fun.”


Mainz are expected to demand somewhere between €20m to €30m for Gruda this summer.
